I know its not really my fight, just wondering if or how some of you react to this situation.
My stepsons birth mom allows him to call her boyfriend, and her babys daddy, "daddy". It makes my husband tear up just a bit everytime the little boy says something about his "daddy" and he is talking about his moms boyfriend. My husband tries to calmly without showing how hurt he is, tell him that man isn't his daddy, that he only has one daddy, and that just like I'm not his mommy, I'm just an adult who is his friend and loves him. My stepson tells us that his mom said that whenever her and her boyfriend get married that her boyfriend will be his new daddy. My husband is trying to find a way to talk to her about this. He knows that he doesn't get to see his son very often, he appreciates this man stepping in where he can't, but he DOES NOT appreciate this man being called daddy. My husband is a WONDERFUL father, he is in the army, We live a WAYS away from his son, not by choice. If it was up to my husband we would live somewhere closer where we could see his son more, and HE could do the things that this other man does with him. How can my husband approach this subject without seeming ungrateful to this man? Its a very big deal to my husband for his son to not think of other men, as his daddy.
